Ice cream lovers are loving this delicious twist to the classic ice cream treat: Rolling it. This form of ice cream, called Stir-Fried ice cream, originated in Thailand, and it has been sold there since 2009. Now, the dessert has been spread and popularized overseas, all the way to the US. I was able to try this ice cream myself at Dahlicious Creamery, located in Torrance, California.

Stir Fried ice cream is made by pouring liquid ice cream, usually handmade, onto an ice grill, frying it until it turns into a creamy solid. Then all sorts of ingredients the consumers asks for are added, such as fruits or cookie bits. Next, the ice cream is laid out on a cold board and scrapes it into segmented, rolled columns of goodness. Afterwards the customer can request any extra toppings to finish off the dessert, such as a chocolate syrup or fresh strawberries.

When I entered the shop, I was pleasantly surprised by the extremely long line to get ice cream; It was going out of the door and it was 10:00 P.M.! I was able to witness the rolling of the ice cream, which I found entertaining and satisfying to the eye. The flavor I ordered was strawberry flavored ice cream with fresh strawberries and chocolate syrup on top, and it was very delicious. The ice cream is a little difficult to eat, as it is hard and takes precision to cut into it with a spoon, but the taste was absolutely worth it.

Some of the craziest things are being done to food these days, but some, like stir fried ice cream, is a good crazy.
